    Programming Newbie

    I have a minimal understanding of programming as I am starting to take classes at school. I have learned all of the basics of Object Oriented Programming using Java.

    My question is to all the programmers here is where did you get started?
    I would like to learn Visual Basic or C++ to eventually starting to write my own front end software.

    Does anyone know of any good books or online tutorials on learning Visual Basic?

    Like I said, I know the basics of writing code but I just wouldn't know where to start to learn how to do this.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Normally it's best to understand the logic and mechanics of programming before you start learning a particular language. Things like variables, loops, conditionals, functions/procedures, etc are common to all programming languages. That's why colleges offer programming courses using a "teaching" language first so that students can learn these concepts without having to worry too much about the syntax. I learned to program on FORTRAN (am I giving away my age?) but have applied that knowledge to Pascal, Basic, Visual Basic, C, C++, Java, etc.

    The Visual Basic Bible is good

    As far as sites go try these.

    I have a huge list elsewhere, i will see if I can dig it up.
